spots rapid tone repair. from neutrogena®. >>> while president obama was talking about the root causes of rising inequality in america and mourn the death of nelson mandela who spent lifetime fighting poverty and said, quote, i'm nearing my end. i want to be able to sleep until eternity with a broad smile on my face, snknowing that the you, opinion makers and everybody is trying to unite the nation. well, billy o'reilly the gop and their crew are at it again cranking up a so-called war on christmas. complaining about the semantics of using the phrase happy holidays instead of merry christmas. fox news has even set up a web page for viewers to share their personal stories saying, quote, once again, this holiday season the right to celebrate christmas is under attack. if it's happening in your community, let us know by submitting your story. now, i never thought i'd say this but i agree with fox on this one. the right to celebrate christmas is under attack. when over a million unemployed people risk losing emergency benefits, tens of millions of working people can't earn a living wage an

for the politics lead. first rule about re-branding obama care, you do not talk about obama care. today the white house launched a three-week blitz on the public's perception of the affordable care act. because, according to press secretary jay carney, obama care does not exist anymore. here's what he told cnn's jim acosta. >> jim, i, first of all, there's not an insurance policy called obama care. i think it's important to your viewers that they understand they're purchasing private insurance. >> still, the president didn't shy away from the term today when he was defending the law. >> that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is, let's just go back to the status quo because they sure haven't presented an alternative. >> so what's in a name? let's bring in our panel, editor of the "weekly standard," bill kristol, former arkansas senator and chairwoman of the it's my business coalition, blanche linco lincoln, and washington bureau che chief for "usa today" susan page. former president bill clinton is slapping down reports a few weeks ago he was trying to give hillary cl

one bit. [ talking simultaneously ] >> we don't know who's running on obama care. >> i did answer. >> every candidate. >> let me get back to this. but let me just say democrats like to talk about a war on women. today vice president joe biden showed us how to take that war to asia. >>> next, i next i'll play you his latest gaff and ask how debbie can explain it. we're aig. and we're here. to help secure retirements and protect financial futures. to help communities recover and rebuild. for companies going from garage to global. on the ground, in the air, even into space. we repaid every dollar america lent us. and gave america back a profit. we're here to keep our promises. to help you realize a better tomorrow. from the families of aig, happy holidays. see, i knew testosterone could affect sex drive, but not energy or even my mood. that's when i talked with my doctor. he gave me some blood tests... showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number.

to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a hospital in mexico for radiation poisoning. think of the timing here becaus
, nelson mandela will be laid to rest in south africa on december 15th. president and mrs. obama will be there to pay their respects. fox's ed henry just wrapped up an interview with bill clinton be who shared his memories of the leader. >> he talked to me in that prison cell as we grabbed the bars and looked out together about what it was like. and i said tell me how this changed you. how did you give up 27 of the best years of your life and come out a better man than you went? he said, i realized they could take everything from me except my mind and my heart. those things i would have to give them. he decided not to give them away. he was free before he was released. >> tributes have been pouring in over the last 24 hours. >> we've lost one of the most influential courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with us on this earth. >> extremely sad and traj ek news. we're just reminded what an extraordinarily inspiring man nelson mandela was and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family now. >> a new low, low, low, loss of pain. he accompl
example of the obama administration tripping over its own feet? because here was an opportunity to engage with pope francis, who is a pope talking about poverty, talking about the things most catholics care about, issues of income inequality, things that the obama administration cares about. >> but how's this conflict with that? >> they allow themselves to get beat up for it. it was a dumb move not to position this better. $1.4 million isn't going to do much -- >> charlie, do you really believe -- you just said it, i guess you do, that the president's blown a chance to salute the good social policies and statements of the pope? you still can't do that? >> what i'm saying is that catholic voters are the swing voters in america. >> you're speaking my language. >> they're a complex electorate. you know that better than anyone, chris. but in this case, i really think the obama administration made a logical choice. it's about real estate, as you said, about savings, small savings. don't you think they could have packaged this a little bit better and not allowed the republicans to open the door
americans there's more to obama care than the fumbled rollout, a powerful ally talked to cnn espanol. >> i don't think you can find anybody harder that went out of his way to explain the bill more than i did. >> reporter: he's smoothing over tension lingering from this. >> the president should honor the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got. >> reporter: when he publicly urged obama last month to keep his promise about his health care law. for clinton, the issue hits close to home. >> i have a lot at stake here personally for the work i've done for health care and the work i tried to support. and hillary does, too. we've been working on this health care thing for 20 years. >> reporter: president obama will be speaking at a youth summit on the affordable care act. chris, as you know, young people are key to this. they're si their signing up, is going to offset, that's the plan anyway, older americans who are more costly to care for. >> absolutely. brianna keilar at the white house this morning. >>> another situation for you to watch this morning, a winter s
, republicans want to talk about obama care, they want to talk about other issues. they think they can beat up on obama and the democrats and don't want to get bogged down by shutdowns and debt limit fights. there's no reason to think stocks are too high because washington's going to kill everything. >> and maybe it was set so low because it was on the floor. >> you can't go much lower than they are. they can clear the bar for expectations which is no shut down. and maybe get the approval ratings in the 10% range, double digits at some point. >> one of the things we've been watching is what the fed's going to do next. how much do you think the fed has been responsible for this. and if the tapering begins, is that really something that takes the steam out of the market? not if it's just based on valuations like you've been talking. >> i have not been of the view that fed-driven liquidity is the sole support under the market. we touched on it a few minutes ago, there are many traditional fundamental supports, not least being simple gdp growth. and the base from which we came classic epic market
this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt. especially when it comes from the economy, from a different progressive era, 100 years ago. what's interesting is w
something that we probably, president obama said, we'll never see again. >> john meacham, i was talking to my 10-year-old girl about nelson mandela, explaining about him, what he had done, the sacrifices he made, the way he changed this country and the world. i'm wondering, though, of course, my 10-year-old girl didn't know an awful lot about nelson mandela. and we won't even talk about my 5-year-old boy. he'll get it in years to come. what do history books write about this man? >> the last lines of the 20th century. he was arguably with john paul ii, martin luther king, he was someone without whom the world would be radically different and worse. while america mourns him today we should remember that america was not always with him. i think that's an important part of history. president reagan opposed the point signatures of sanctions in the 1980s against south africa. it was only in 1990 four years after mandela was released he was received by president bush. he was part of the complex cold war world. this is a more complicated history that the country of the united states should take
" with jake tapper starts now. >>> happy repeal day! take it easy, obama care fans and foes. i'm talking about repealing prohibition. it ended 80 years ago this hour. cheers! i'm jake tapper. this is "the lead." >>> the world lead. it's the city where terrorists attacked and killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans more than a year ago. today, another u.s. citizen has been slain in benghazi, libya. who was ronald thomas smith ii? can his family expect justice? >>> the national lead. with his son's suicide, this has been the worst year of pastor rick warren's life but he has relied on his faith to get through it. pastor warren joins us live to share his theory that faith can lighten the burden not only on your soul but on your health. >>> and the politics lead. how to talk to a woman. no, it's not a book full of cheesy pick-up lines. it's a crash course for the men of the republican party. they are getting tips on communicating with female voters. lesson one, lose the idiotic remarks about rape. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. we begin with the world
not done it. we have not talked about it yet. many people taking insurance through obama care but another 7 or 8 million or more will get it through medicaid expansion and that's important. >> the republicans do seem to be standing down on the repeal obama care or not fund the government. they are now pubically making it very clear there is no chance of another government shut down over this issue. >> well, if you come close to committing political suicide once, most parties usually learn something from that experience. and i think they know perfectly well if they tried to shut down the government over obama care, they would take all of the attention away from the problems of obama care and put it on them. they fell way behind in all of the polls so i would be stunned. i have never been fully surprised by anything that happens on the hill but i would be really stunned if they tried to go through that again. it just wouldn't help them. >> there is a big problem in the numbers that we are hearing reported. there is no definition of what it means to be enrolled. each state is reporting the num
their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent wage, as well. >> so you -- will you acknowledge i didn't set you up, bernstein? >> not only acknowledge that, i'm ready to give you a hug. >> okay. >> i'm ready to do that to you too. >> all right. man hug. little man hug action. >> where are you? >> i'm in d.c. i'm not willing to come up to jersey to give you a hug. >> that could take a while. and you can use my -- some of
're going to talk about everything from obama care to the debt ceiling and whether or not the art of compromise is dead in washington. we have the unique perspective of a former beltway insider right after this. >>> first, though, as we head to the break, let's take a look at the biggest winners and losers on the s&p year-to-date. >>> welcome back, everybody. our guest host this morning, former senator bob kerrey who was the executive chairman for research and scholarship. and bob, we've had you on most of the morning and haven't touched on what's been happening in washington. big headlines this morning from all of the major newspapers focus on what's happening with obama care right now. the "new york times" is claiming that insurers say the health care website is still flawed. the "wall street journal" says that connecticut is considering bypassing some of the back ends just to check to make sure that people are actually residents and whether or not they would qualify for a lot of the aid. and with the deadline approaching january 1st for when a lot of the health insurance plans
were very similar. president obama just came off a brutal fight with republicans over the debt ceiling. he faced reelection in the year and he was doing something to jack up his own approval and to also talk about what his presidency was about and to put some firmness behind that. he's doing that again and he's had a rough six weeks over the obama care website. he's trying to reframe this debate as they head into the midterm elections to be broader than just obama care, democrats realize that if this is about obama care in the mid-term elections it's not a good issue for them and even though we see positive things going on, they want things to be about more than that. for some, this is a signal about getting his mojo back. >> the president's economic policies improve government reliance rather than economic mobility and rather than tackling income inequality by lifting people up, he's been fixated on taxing some down. >> why do you think republicans seem so fixated on the government reliance narrative and this tax and spend. this tax and spend phrase that they of the to use over and ov
. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of healthcare.gov. no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enrollment is picking up, brooke. that is really the best news that this white house can be hoping for right now, for a
. >> not too early to be talking about healthcare.gov. this is what the obama website looks like today. this is brand-new. see plans before i apply. what's different is -- they were afraid to put this out in the beginning because they thought sticker shock would scare people away but now you can click on that. what's interesting is the sticker shock is going to overwhelm people. i was reading today if you are 35 years old, a couple living in el paso, texas, you get the blue cross-blue shield plan, the premium is less than $300 a month but the deductible is $12,000 a year. this is not what we were promised. >> not at all. also on the website, i saw was they added a q. and a. area where it says can i keep my own doctor because everyone has been asking. it answers depending on the plan you choose and the marketplace, you may -- not you can -- you may be able to keep your own doctor, certainly raising eyebrows and suspicions when it comes to remembering and recalling the president's promise that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctors. chris wallace, ezekiel emanual behind it al
house said that the president didn't know his uncle, now we learn that mr. obama not only knew him but he lived with him. the question is, is this a big deal? we're talking about it right now to break it down a historian at princeton and david gergen who joins us from atlanta, he is a cnn senior political analyst and a former white house adviser to four presidents. gentlemen, thank you for being here. david, let's start with you. you know what it's like to work at a white house and deal with media questions especially on sensitive issues, how, however, does a white house put out false information like it did on the president's relationship to an uncle? >> well, let me say for beginners, i don't think this is a big deal. i think it's a modest deal. i think it reflerkts a sloppiness within the white house operation. but we've had other presidents who have had relatives who have rather inconvenient histories, let us say, and there's always been a fairly strong effort by the white house staff to distance the president from that inconvenient relative if possible. that seems to what has
on getting rid of president obama. impeach him, they say. and no issue has driven this impeachment talk more than the president's signature achievement, health care. forget that it's starting to help millions of americans, it's an impeachable offense. >> our next guest says the effects of the president's actions over the years rises to the level of an impeachable offense. >> an impeachable offense. granted, that's fox news, but it might as well be the republican party. today the house gop held a hearing on the president's failure to execute the nation's laws. during it, congressman darrell issa, a man who's been on a witch hunt against this administration from day one actually compared the president to nixon. and this birther congressman came right out with it. >> we've also talked about the "i" word, impeachment, which again i don't think would get past the senate in the current climate. >> am i missing anything? >> here's what you're missing. you have no grounds to impeach the president. and let's be honest. this isn't just about health care. oh, no. that's one of the reasons they want to
're going to be talking about. if he doesn't, this could be one of the issues we think about when we think about president obama. >> the white house yesterday called a report about obama's meetings with sebelius misleading andist based on a "false premise." >> texas, oklahoma, arkansas, if you haven't heard yet, it is freezing maybe. that will stay with us. jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for
and talked about his wife's chances of running for president, joe biden, and his critique of obama care. >> is mrs. clinton running for president? >> i don't know. and i think, and she believes, that the country should spend at least another year working hard on the problems that we have. we have very serious challenges in american and responsibilities around the world. i think it's a big mistake this constant four-year complain. we need to deal with the business we have before us. >> what kind of president do you think vice president joe biden would make? >> if he runs and he's a nominee, i'll try to help him. i think the world of him. i think -- we've been friends. i first remember working with him when he was the chairman of the judiciary committee to the senate and i was a governor and he asked me to testify in a judicial hearing for him. and i had to file a testimony because i had to go to asia. but i've known him for years and years. and i have a very high opinion of him. i care a great deal about him and i think he's done a good job for the president and for the country. >> is it
always talking about big government and the problems with the obama care rollout. and if we can put it on the screen, here was his answer. and the challenge, i think, we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around white house organization. it actually has to do with what i refer to earlier is, we have some of the big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. wow! that's the greatest news of the week. he's saying big government is like an old de soto at a time when we want to drive efficient sports cars. the only question i have is, isn't obama care just another one of those? back to you. >> all right, rick, thank you so much. rick santelli in chicago. >>> nobody puts baby in the corner without an -- without an ipad. [ laughter ] stay tuned for this, the latest in toddler technology in just a moment. hi honey, did you get the toaster cozy? yep. got all the cozies. [ grandma ] with new fedex one rate, i could fill a box and ship it for one flat rate. so i knit until it was full. you'd be crazy not to.
we've been talking about there's an enormous push behind getting some kind of a living wage or minimum wage passed. nothing much is happening in washington. president obama was in favor of a $9 minimum wage. now in favor of a $10.10-minute mum wage. not a lot going on in congress. in the states you can see there's a lot more going on. california recently passed a bill to raise the minimum wage from $8 to $10. the highest in the country. district of columbia they are about to pass, i think, legislation that would take it up over $11. doing this in concert with two maryland counties because you want to avoid the factor if you raise the minimum wage in one place, walmart threatened not to go to washington. this is a controversial subject. in the context the bottom fifth of american families have lost 15% of their real income since the year 1999. these are hurting people. >> sam stein, this is a central issue from extending unemployment benefits -- you know, progressives have always been pushing for higher minimum wages, conservatives have been talking about keeping the minimum
